A Big {Thanks!}

Good Afternoon,

I've just stopped at Tamworth Services on my way down to Bath, where from tomorrow we'll be filming Creativity TV, and what did I want to do? Have a tinkle, coffee, or post on my blog? Well, actually all three, but it seems I must have got the Blogging Bug again! Now, I must type quickly, as I only have 25 mins battery power on my laptop, and there are no plug sockets to be seen!
Today's card isn't a Letterpress card, although I do have more of those to share with you, I thought you would like to see something a little different. I made this card back at the end of the summer last year I think, to thank one of the Mum's from school for taking Joesph to school {probably when I was on one of my jaunts around the country with work!}. I made it in about 10 minutes and if I recall correctly it was one of my first outings with both the stamp and my new set of Copics. I'm ashamed to say I think that was the last time I used them too {so far}. The stamp is from Penny Black and I love it - it so fits the CAS style of card. The greeting stamp was bought for my by Sheila when she was in Australia - there were four in the set and they all carry these fonts - surprisingly the fonts I use on my blog - by complete co-incidence. No wonder I love the stamps so much.

Last nights Drama Group meeting went well, we are rehearsing for the All England Festivals, and our one act play is called 'Last Tango in Little Grimley'. it's very funny, and if we keep practicing we'll be very good - who knows, we may even win our round!

Anyhoo, with an Americano {with milk} in my hand, and my battery about to run out, I must set off on the dusty road known as the M42 to the beautiful city of Bath. Promise I will try and be back before the end of the week - maybe blogging will encourage me to take some photos of my visit too!
